WWA Wakeboard World Series and Malibu Evolution Pro Series Final Showdown September 16-18 at the Malibu Lake Biwa Pro Presented by Rockstar Energy
(August 12, 2017) – The World Wake Association and Malibu Boats are proud to deliver the Malibu Lake Biwa Pro presented by Rockstar Energy September 16-18 for the final stop of the WWA Wakeboard World Series (WBWS) and Malibu Evolution Pro Series. Returning to Japan’s wakeboarding origins on Lake Biwa, the closest title race in recent history all comes down to this, in a battle you can’t miss behind the world-class Malibu M235.
The birthplace of Japanese wakeboarding, the infamous Lake Biwa has been host to some of the most important historical events of all time. There is no place more fitting for the final WBWS event of 2017 as a new WBWS King and Queen will be crowned.
“We have had the privilege to witness the world’s best wake athletes redefine our sport this season at beautiful locations around the world. These riders rise to the occasion at every event getting fans on their feet with highlight reel runs and a winning spirit that never quits,” said WWA President Shannon Starling. “I have never seen more athletes with the capability to take home the title in one season as it all comes down to this. Thank you to the athletes, fans and our amazing partners for making 2017 the best WBWS season yet!”
The current WBWS standings heading into the last three events give no room for error with just fifty points separating the top five. The final showdown is set for Lake Biwa in Shiga, Japan as the warriors of wake discover who will win it all.
